Summary

Function: llOwnerSay( string msg );

Says msg to the object's owner only, if the owner is currently in the same region.

• string msg message to be transmitted

Caveats

  • If msg is longer than 1024 bytes, it will be truncated to 1024 bytes. This can convey 1024 ASCII characters, or less if non-ASCII are present.
  • Silently fails ~45 seconds after the owner leaves the region the object is in.
  • Silently fails when the object to which the script is attached is deeded to a group.
  • Some viewers do not display llOwnerSay text when msg is empty ("").
  • Produces swirly particle effects for the owner (who sees the message) but these effects do not appear to be visible to other avatars (who don't).

Examples

<lsl> default {

   touch_start(integer num_detected)
   {
       llOwnerSay("Ouch!");
   }

}

</lsl>

Useful Snippets

<lsl> // llOwnerSay extension for preventing silent failures // paste this code at the top of the script and replace // any calls to llOwnerSay with uOwnerSayPlus

uOwnerSayPlus(string inputString) {

   key owner = llGetOwner();
   // single owner that the region still has a handle for
   if (llKey2Name(owner))
   {
       llOwnerSay(inputString);
   }
   // group owned, must send the message publicly
   else if (llList2Key(llGetObjectDetails(llGetKey(), [OBJECT_GROUP]), 0) == owner)
   {
       llWhisper(0, "/me : " + inputString);
   }
   // single owner, not present, send them an IM
   else
   {
       llInstantMessage(owner, inputString);
   }

} </lsl>
